ZX clutch change - rad protection

Post by Jon »

In the final push to remove the Zx gearbox during a clutch change, unfortunately you may end up damaging the radiator with the gearbox.(especially if you are doing the job on your own) To prevent expensive damage I had a piece of 18 gauge steel folded so that the top 4 inches go over the front panel to hold the protector in place, and the rest of the steel rests over the back of the rad in order to prevent it being punctured by the gearbox.
